Union Hall | 24 Central St. | Rockport

Every summer for the past four decades, the stars of photography align in Rockport to share their knowledge and inspire others to push their creative boundaries. This summer, Maine Media Workshops + College is pleased to present a unique opportunity to be photographed by a world-renowned artist in a private portrait session.

The silent auction kicks off on July 12 at a cocktail reception held in the beautifully restored Union Hall, the original home of the Workshops. The ticketed reception will feature access to artists in attendance and the best opportunity to place a winning bid on a portrait session. Bids above a specified amount will close the bidding for those portrait sessions on the evening of the reception. Guests and the general public will have an opportunity to bid on remaining items in an online auction that will run for two additional days.

Auction attendees will also have an opportunity to win valuable prizes with the purchase of a $25 raffle ticket. Prizes will include a windjammer dinner cruise aboard the Schooner Heron, a workshop at MMW+C, vintage wine, and a week-long stay in an ocean-front cottage. Proceeds of the auction and raffle will benefit Maine Media, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
